About this event

An initiative of Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), the World Partnership Walk is Canada's largest movement in support of global development. Every year thousands of Canadians from coast to coast take part in the World Partnership Walk to fight global poverty. The $130+ million raised through the Walk to date has contributed directly to over 180 initiatives in more than a dozen countries that have reduced poverty and improved the quality of life for millions in Africa and Asia.

As a participant and donor, you will contribute to AKFC's wide range of activities to reduce poverty around the world, including programs to improve health care, education, resilience to climate change, and gender equality.
